. >> >> a russian commander has been called. there was even. but one self-defense unit arrived the ukrainians fall in and m off. their point made. >> so the ukrainian soldiers came out of their base and were headed towards the airstrip, because they wanted to reach the weapons depot, and that's when they were stopped. now, there have been negotiations throughout the day between the ukraine january and the russian commanders. we still don't have the jut come. >> the overnight deadlines for ukrainian troops to give up the rugs passed with no sign of the military storm that had been threatened. position cow denied there was ever a deadline. this soldier said none of his team would vow allegiance to the new pro russian government. >> marines never surrender, nobody at the base wants to switch sides, take an oath of loyalty to a dubious government that not been elected legally. >> without insignia, and the russian mainland is just 4 1/2 kilometers away across a stretch ottawa water. another stand off of sorts. ukrainian ships, flanked by russians, watching their ever move. the regional capitol was quie

reserves to himself the right to intervene militarily at any time anyplace in ukraine, not just in defense of rugs, but also in defense of ukraineens. that's essentially a cart blanche to invade any country. >> saying he reserves the right to protect his people as if ukraine is still part of the old soviet union. >> putin has never like so many other russian elites accepted the legitimacy of an independent ukraine and he as far as he's concerned doesn't even consider ukrainians to be a separate people. essentially, he's marching in to defend his own. he also said and this is absolutely shocking, that he is "not worried by war." no leader other than adolf hitler and perhaps the ruler of north korea would say that kind of thing in today's world. >> should we be worried about vladimir putin's mental capacities or are we seeing a situation where some suggest we are looking at a russian leader who is isolated and insulated and only speaks to people who tell him what he wants to hear? >> i think it's both. clearly he is insulated, isolated, although at the same time, do keep in mind the russian
cost of providing health care in this country because of defensive medicine and expanding opportunities that people have through tax policy to get their own insurance, tax credits to allow them to have their own insurance policies. so the whole range of good republican ideas out there, but we don't get a chance to get those considered today because in the united states senate at least, democrats blocked those initiatives. you have a president and white house for whom this is his signature initiative. he will certainly veto anything we send him. jenna: you don't get to tell the dealer which cards to give you. you have to just play them, right, senator? that is what you're facing and focus is the election later this year and we'll certainly talk a lot about that. senator, great to have you back on the program as always. thank you so much. >> thanks, jenna. jon: have you heard this? there is a new pitch to make baseball's opening day a national holiday. who is behind it? will it fly? do you like the idea? we're live with that story. jon: a novel pitched to congress about america's pastime.
to a senior defense official, defense secretary chuck hagel, had a it telephone conversation with his counterpart today. we're still waiting to get details about what specifically was said during that conversation. but, of course, the white house monitoring the situation quite closely, in consultation with its partners abroad. for days, the administration has been warning russia against intervening in ukraine. of course, on friday, it was clear that that diplomatic strategy had failed, so president obama came out with a strong warning to russia not to ramp this up any further. he said there would be costs. here's a little bit more of what he had to say. take a listen. >> throughout this crisis, we have been very clear about one fundamental principle. the ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to determine their own future. together with our european allies, we have urged an end to the violence, and encouraged ukrainians to pursue a course in which they stabilize their country, forge a broad based government and move to elections this spring. >> reporter: so the president was fairly
to bush and obama's secretary of defense bob gates who said this: "it seems to me that trying to speak with one voice, one american voice, has become a quaint thing of the past. i regret that enormously. and so do i. there's nothing more frightening to our enemy than a strong, united voice. it's incumbent upon his political rivals to encourage him privately, not provide political broadsides in public. there's going to be a lot of time to do that during the political campaigns but for now washington leaders should measure their words a bit more carefully because, richard, not on is the whole world watching, vladimir putin is watching. do you agree with secretary gates and myself that you can disagree with the president of the united states, the commander in chief without going out making extreme political broadsides? >> absolutely. what makes it more relevant here, i may be in a minority, but i don't think vladimir putin had in his closet a 16-point plan for ukraine. i think he's improvising and making it up as he's going along, looking for opportunities, playing off what it is we say a
about the bus, but now i am on to cars. the defense summit at washington, d.c., we have the latest from the ukraine as well as pending changes to the u.s. military budget. william cohen will be joining me to give me more details, he served as secretary of defense under president bill clinton. outside the banks, they are talking about skateboarding. we have tony hawk, the legend from state wording, turning the sport into a mega-million-dollar business. all of that and more coming up at 5 p.m. eastern. more "street smart," next. ♪ >> we were talking about an overhaul of the tax code and whether or not it has any legs. that is tomorrow and we will talk some more about it. >> that is good. it has been a long time since we have had comprehensive tax reform bills. >> all the way back to the 80's, right? >> back when the giver was in office. >> 86. >> maybe they can bring ronald reagan back to life. >> we will see. on. >>tony hawk comes that is awesome. >> that's right. stick around, everyone. ♪ the hour, meaning that bloomberg tv is on the markets. let's get you caught up on how the marke
of us that the chinese and iranians are watching this feeble response as we're gutting our defenses and they're planning their own next moves. it's not a good picture. >> colonel, we know that president obama and president putin spoke on the phone for about an hour and a half. do you think president obama understands the gravity of the situation and how important ukraine really is? >> no. in fact, i don't think that they recognize that this is a foretaste of what's to come if we continue the path that we're on for unilateral disarmament. we've got to stop battering our allies, like israel with the lunacy of trading land for peace. we need to build the xl pipeline, which our canadian allies want us to do and the obama administration can't figure out how to do it. if the iranians close the straights of hormuz next week, the price of oil is going to go through the roof and the economy is going to grind to a halt. all of these are the kinds of things that when america decides, a, we're not going to lead, and b, we're going to destroy the opportunity to deter this kind of action with a s
has emboldened vladimir putin at this point. you also mentioned the missile defense shield in poland and the czech republic. i want to remind everybody what president obama said when he was caught on an open mike on this issue early in this presidency. we have the words up on the screen. he said after my election i will have more flexibility. and he said okay i'll take your message back to putin. >> you mentioned the first budget he had 10 years ago, that's when he took down poe portland'. we had a missile intercept base going in there. i talked to poland and said are you sure if we go along with this you won't pull the rug out from under us? and he did that in the first budget. all of our interceptors are on the east coast. now we realize iran will have that capability they are predicting by 2015 and a delivery system. so it's a level of danger, martha, that we have never been in before and we need to start rebuilding. it has got to be a wakeup call to the american people that we can't come up with the resources in places where we should. martha: last night bill o'reilly talked abou
in defense of russian interests and russian citizens and the mobilization of forces around the black sea fleet was something people have foreseen for some time. >> i'm going to ask you to sort of read the mind a little bit of vladimir putin, of what sort of his end game might be. what do you suppose putin is up to here? is his goal simply to keep ukraine from falling under the sphere of the european union as opposed to russia, or do you think there's some bigger game that would have ripple effects both to the union and to the u.s.? >> there is a critical goal you just laid out, which is that the new government in ukraine, the weak new government and successive governments after it are not in the best position to have a close association with the eu, which is one of the things that triggered this in the first place. putin also does not want to see ukraine pick up the idea again of joining nato, for example, and there's also a strong signaling factor to all the countries around russia in the neighborhood, not just to ukraine, but also to moldova, georgia, and all of the other countries who

't spend time or money developing those capabilities for purely conventional purposes or for defensive purposes. usually when you undergo those efforts to develop that kind of capability, it's because you want to have the opportunity to one day put a nuclear warhead on one of those rockets. so that's the story of iran. massive expansion in their enrichment and reprocessing capabilities, secret enrichment programs that they try to hide from the world, the development of long-range missile capabilities, and then you add to it that we're not dealing with the government of belgium here. we're not dealing with the government of japan or south korea or any other responsible government on the planet. we are dealing with a government that actively uses terrorism all over the world as an active element of their foreign policy. they are involved in supporting various terrorist elements around the country, not just in the middle east but open source reporting revealed just a couple of years ago they were involved in a plot to assassinate a foreign ambassador in washington, d.c., here. not in the
